A middle of the rising tensions with North Korea president trump is now lashing out one of the most powerful Republicans in Washington senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. It comes after what McConnell said. After the failure to repeal and replace obamacare McConnell said that the president was new to this line of work and that is expectations. Were excessive. The president did not like that and ABC's Mary Bruce tonight. The blame game started when Mitch McConnell said this about the president. New president of course Robin an inch lot of work. Before him. And I think. It's. Excessive expectations. For more than 24 hours the president has been firing back today delivering this cell vote. I've been hearing repealed and replaced Dallas that it is flowing here is regularly place. And then I get there and I said with the bill I wanna sign it first day. They don't have.
